uCalgary celebrates opening of Taylor Family Digital Library

October 20, 2011

Yesterday marked the grand opening of the University of Calgary's Taylor Family Digital Library. One of the most digitally progressive academic libraries in North America, the facility features a library, art gallery, archives, rare collections, a student access centre, and the latest digital tools for learning and research. As part of the project, uCalgary also created the Taylor Quadrangle and constructed its first High Density Library, which houses about 60% of the institution's current book and journal collections, on top of a significant portion of archival holdings. The entire project was funded by the Taylor family and all 3 levels of government at a cost of $205 million. uCalgary News Release
